Synopsis:

Starring Terao Akira, Fukatsu Eri, Yoshioka Hidetaka, and Asaoka Ruriko, this heartwarming tale is about a Mathematics genius who was set to become a professor at the University of Japan until a traffic accident shattered his dreams. Now the poor man has lost his short-term memory and can only remember the last 80 minutes of his life.

After different housekeepers have tried and failed to look after the troubled academic, a young woman and her 10-year-old son come to work for him. They are charmed by his love of mathematics and discover that within his cerebral musings are words and ideas of great beauty.
